TAQUERIA EL AMIGO - OH BABY!

Swankalicious | Oct 27, 201205:34 PM     22

I have found paradise, and it is in Waltham. Mr. Swank and I went to TEA today after running errands, and I enjoyed what is, hands down, the best taco I've ever had in my life. Pork chili topped with a tiny smidgeon of onion and cilantro. Mouthwatering, juicy, tangy, and wrapped in two warm, sturdy soft tortillas. A little drizzle of smoky salsa and swoon! Mr. Swank got beef cheeks topped with green sauce, rice, and beans. He was blown away. My taco also came with a burrito (!) which was majestic in its largesse, packed with fatty smoky pork chili, tomatoes, onions, and just a hint of sour cream. I am still on a high. I will never go to another taqueria!!! Plus, our meal was incredibly cheap: Young Swank's child's quesadilla was $2.
